    I'm spending a ton of gold that I otherwise would not be if they had live boost. This is total crap.

    When did Ryan Buchter become this difficult? ugh
    Swing or no swing you're missing that curveball.

    is HOF difficulty similar this week ?
    seems a tiny bit harder for me at gold at 6.9/6.10, but still able to get through
    Easy till 6-10.  All cork screw pitches from Oswalt.

    HOF 6.9 and 6.10 totally suck today.
    I got Legend Mookie against Sutcliffe....my "great hitting matchup" nets me 3 up, 3 down over and over. Damn.
    Bring back Dock Ellis - that guy gave up homer after homer.

    Did it with no gold. Hooray for live boost. Not sure about cycle capping though. See where it ends up, 30% FP discount helps.

    I gave up on HOF for now after getting my ass handed to me by Paxton and took on classic to cap. I seem to love the pain and frustration of the game so I am sure I will come back for another few attempts.

    @KSMETS Paxton's ready for the Astros, better be handing you some L's ;)

    Scioscia w/ 12/12 is getting destroyed by Sutcliffe over and over. This is so bullshit

    Silver team, beat HOF for the first time today. I spent gold on boosts at 6.9 and 6.10 and then more gold on restarts. Cecil Cooper (w 10/10) didn't even come close to beating Oswalt the first 4 times, and then, just before my live boost was about to end, I finally got through on the 5th try.

    I won't sniff 6.10 today. Getting curved every time. Pulled within a run just now with no outs. My reward? 9 straight unhittable curves. Could not even touch one to try and get a run home. When this game determines you will lose, you will lose. Nothing you can do about it.

    Oh, my matchup favorability is more than double. Almost 2.5. Been curved out of 6.9 six times now.

    Got a brand new glitch (for me anyways) today...of course...on HOF Round 6.10. Scioscia vs. Oswalt.
    I'm down 6-4. Man on 2nd. Two out. Scioscia gets jammed with a cutter on the fists. He pops it up towards third base...thirdbaseman comes in...ball goes about 30 feet in the air....drops in fair just inside the line...rolls past thirdbaseman...into leftfield foul territory....and then the ball just sits there. No foul ball / no single / no one picks it up.
    Nothing left to do but to restart the app.
    Thanks glu.

    BobdylanFan, I had that happen to me too earlier, but on a double. Hit it off that giant damn wall in RF and the view of the hit just froze and the ball bounced away. Game is telling me I scored two runs (bases were loaded) and I have won, but it just froze with a shot of the wall. Thank goodness it was only 6.2 or 6.3. Can't remember which.

    I should be credited with an inside the park homer if no one is gonna pick up the ball....I'm sure my Scioscia kept running...lol
  • JEDDDOGGYJEDDDOGGY Registered Users, Member 1,864 Posts
    Incorrect as players are only programmed to run unceasingly from 3rd base on ground balls back to the pitcher.

    Of course my next foray in HOF 6.10 ended in an app crash from my video boost. Needless to say, it was time to turn off the game and go out and do yard work for a bit....

    So lost to 6-10 Oswalt 5 times with 40 or 80 gold boost.  Said screw it the 6th time.  No boost.  Beat Oswalt. 
  • drsmartassphddrsmartassphd Registered Users, Member 1,624 Posts

    I won. I finally frigging won. MoFo curved me out with the score 6-6 bases loaded and one out. I wanted to scream I was so effing mad. Six straight Krukster couldn't even hit.

    Went to extras. Double and a HR. Two pitches. Done.

    It's so beautiful.  Think I'm gonna tear up :'(      but with more of a smile.

    What exactly is cycle capping? Is that just beating it so many times you can cap him with out spending resources?

    Lol, that would be NUTS! It's basically just taking the player to a certain level, and then taking him the rest of way via multiple cycles. (Ie take him to d1, then cycle 9 more times to d10)

    Congrats @retirepujols
    Finally joined the big boy club myself today:


  • JCAM80JCAM80 Registered Users, Member 416 Posts
    I punched my club ticket as well. Even made him do the work on his last upgrade. Konerko was awesome, used him on x.9 & x.10 of every level to see if he had any weakness. Dominated...whether he had 0, 1, or 2 skills active at start. 
  • drsmartassphddrsmartassphd Registered Users, Member 1,624 Posts
    I have been having lots of fun this evening. Haven't been getting curved to death. Got through again, but it took four tries in 6.10. I've made it back to 6 again, going to try one more before the live boost stops.

    @JCAM80 you inspired me to try this 

    But my balls were not large enough to try him again at 6.10 😂 maybe next week

    @retirepujols ok that makes way more sense😂. I was over here thinking wow these guys can cycle that many times in one day

  • retirepujolsretirepujols Registered Users, Member 3,463 Posts
    Well, a lot of guys do come out AHEAD in LXP by cycling their faces off. In classic, you can come out WAY ahead with a lot fewer cycles; but cash/Evo/gold are still spent. For me, I took Konerko to d4 just to play it safe and ended up doing 9 cycles. 🤷🏻‍♂️ If I can get my hands on some Adderall, I'll try the 15+ cycle trend one day 🤪

     I’m happy they bumped it up to 470 for the reward but I just would have loved a lefty. Konerko will be great for cvc tho!

    He's great for WOH too.  Not my choice for 6-10 but used him at 6-9 without any struggles even before I had him capped.  

    R/R matchups for WOH really don't bother me.  As long as the two skills are there I find it doesn't really hurt you.  

    But you're right he should be a CvC stud.  Personally I love his skills, pretty versatile.
